Bye, bye … bye bye

If there was one song that characterized the early 1970’s it would be the enigmatic and unforgettable tune from Don McClean titled “Bye-Bye Miss American Pie. With hauntingly mysterious lyrics that ring almost prophetic in nature many have been left scratching their heads trying to figure out just what the strange and compelling lyrics mean. If you are unfamiliar with them (the lyrics) you can read them here.

I bring this up today as my friend at Seryah515 has made an interesting and possibly important discovery regarding the date the song was written in relation to the 18th anniversary of 9/11 this year. Without saying more I will leave it for you to read and ponder.  May God be with us in the coming days. It certainly seems as if things are about to change.

An Open Invitation

untitled.png

“And they built the high places of Baal, which are in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and daughters to pass through the fire unto Molech which I commanded them not, neither came it into my mind, that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin”. Jeremiah 32:35

In the last few weeks we have been witness to what would have once been unthinkable. Many states approving not only of abortion but abortion for any reason up until the moment of birth with no questions asked.  And if that weren’t enough the horrendous vote in our own US Senate recently to withhold care for any infant who managed to survive an abortion attempt …. the modern equivalent to “passing our sons and daughters through the fire” as they did in ancient times.

In the last few days I have asked myself repeatedly, “Why, is this happening?  Why, now? Why this direct and purposeful assault on the most helpless and innocent among us?  Where did this come from and why?” Abortion has always been atrocious but this …. this is something else. When did we become so heartless and cruel?

Then I remembered the Arch from the Temple of Baal that was set up in Washington DC  the latter part of 2018 and I thought, aha! So while looking for some information on the subject I came across an article from CBN news titled, “Arch from the Temple of Baal in DC: Coincidence or Pagan Invitation?”. And that caught my attention.

Quoting from Jonathan Cahn in the CBN article –

“Baal was a god of power, fertility and child sacrifice ….. the reconstructed arch (could possibly serve) as a gateway, and may have been placed as an open invitation to the entity or other entities associated with the arch”. 

Sound far fetched? I don’t think so. In fact, I believe that is exactly what happened.   To read article in full click here

Hence these chilling words from the book of Revelation.

“With a mighty voice he shouted: ‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great! She has become a dwelling place for demons and a haunt for every impure spirit, a haunt for every unclean bird, a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.'” Revelation 18:2

Most people underestimate the spiritual realm. These entities are blood thirsty, power hungry and looking for a home. And we, unwittingly (or not)  put out the welcome mat.

The selling of baby parts is big business. Is that why there is a sudden push for full term but dead babies?  Ah, now it makes sense.

And lest we think that the horrendous practice of selling body parts is relegated to babies – think again. I recently found out to my horror that a couple I knew fairly well 30 years ago is being investigated along with their daughter and 60 others for body brokering at a funeral home in the small Colorado town in which they live.  Instead of cremating bodies brought to them for cremation services, the bodies were instead dismembered and the various parts shipped off to the highest bidder both here and abroad. Turning a nice profit even at discounted prices to those involved.  The ashes returned to grieving families on investigation “cement powder” or something else only identified as non-human. If you can imagine that. A number of cats missing in the area, I presume. Keep in mind this is a very small community. If it can happen there – it can happen anywhere – and I imagine it most likely is. Why stop at babies when you can get mature adults? The killing of babies is just the beginning. Better yet, to keep it all nice and legal ….. death panels to rid society of those deemed unfit or useless. The dollars keep rolling in. To read this story in full, click here

We are told in the book of Ephesians that we” wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12)  And so we are.

Therefore we must be diligent and aware.

As it says in 2 Corinthians 10:3-5

“For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary , they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive very thought to make it obedient to Christ.”

Therefore we must make every effort to put on the whole armor of God. The instruction from Ephesians 6:10-18 never more applicable than today.

“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” Amen and Amen.

This weekend I will be joining a group in protest of the liberal policies of the state in which I live (New Mexico). Number one on the list for me is their atrocious policy of abortion up and until the moment of birth. A practice that is not new here. Sadly women travel here from all over the world for services they cannot get elsewhere. The killing of their full term baby, if you want to call that a service.  I believe in being proactive (and I am) but I also understand that the real battle will be won by utilizing the tools the Lord has given us …. without out them we may win a battle but we can never win the war. Pray (with me) if you will that God may continue to press on my heart all of these things in ways I have never fully grasped before. And as always,

“Pray for the peace of Jerusalem they shall prosper who love thee” Psalm 122:6

Watching and waiting with YOU for the soon return of Jesus! Cindy

New Mexico Pride …. and Shame

untitled.png

Here We Come

My heart swelled with pride at the sight of these men (and one woman, I think) riding horseback into Washington DC to show their support for President Trump. The group call themselves Cowboys for Trump and are led by New Mexico County Commissioner (Otero County) Couy Griffin who said the group was formed as a visible way to show support for the President in his effort to secure the border (part of which New Mexico shares with Mexico) and in support of Second Amendment rights and the right to life of the unborn. You will notice in the photo above the yellow New Mexico flag carried proudly next to the American. One state out of 50 but representative of the hearts and minds of millions of Americans, I believe, who rode vicariously with this group … all the way to Washington ….. with one unanimous message ….. here we come!

Conversely, New Mexico Senators Tom Udall and Martin Heinrich voted against the “born alive” bill today which would have provided medical care to any infant who was lucky enough to survive abortion. A bill which did not pass thanks to democrats who made certain that it did not.

I could be wrong but with the recent push towards infanticide I think the majority of Americans are finally fed up. This is one line that should never have been crossed. There are a lot of prickly issues that not every American can agree upon but leaving babies to die …. that is something else. Only the most evil, vile of humans could agree to something like that. And those people right now ….. represent us. We are appalled; we are fed up; and we are ready to say “no more!”

It may be too late to avert judgment and God would certainly be within his right. But while there remains even the smallest window of time it would behoove us to seize the opportunity to make our voices heard in ways that we have not since the founding of this country. I think the ride to Washington was just the tip of the ice berg. And I thank these cowboys for reminding us of the simple place from which we come. America, of which we are the heart. Our parents, grandparents, great grandparents and great, great grandparents fought and worked to make this country the greatest free place on earth. Their toil, their blood must not have been in vain. They did it for us. How can we do less for those who follow?

The Guffaw Heard Round the World

untitled.png      Zion Williamson

Just 33 seconds into a key game against North Carolina Zion Williamson of Duke University fell to the court after twisting his knee when the side of his Nike shoe unexpectedly blew out. Luckily, Williamson a #1 pick in the upcoming NBA draft was not seriously injured but suffered only a minor knee sprain which was not expected to permanently affect his ability to play.

The incident (as you can imagine) has created quite a stir on social media as a result of the recent Nike/Colin Kaepernic controversy which many considered to be nothing short of insulting. So, when the side of the highly lauded “it must be the shoes” Nike shoe blew out …. it was surely the guffaw heard round the world. As Nike got what many considered to be its “just deserts”. Well, the Bible does say ….

“Pride goes before a fall

Or more specifically –

“Pride goes before destruction, a haughty spirit before a fall” Proverbs 16:18

Something Nike very publicly found out.

And last but not least ….. a new update from Unsealed.Org which I think you will find to be very interesting. To read it click here

Dividing the Land

images

“I will gather all the nations and bring them down to the Valley of Jehoshaphat. And I will enter into judgment with them there, on behalf of my people and my heritage Israel, because they have scattered them among the nations and have divided up my land.”  Joel 3:2

Dividing the Land

On August 21. 2017 there was a total eclipse that crossed the country from the Pacific to the Atlantic in an almost even swath cutting the country virtually in half. Interesting as the country has become increasingly divided both morally and politically since that time  leaving many to wonder just where we are headed if things continue as they are.

Its been the goal of politicians around the world (American politicians, in particular) to solve the middle East crisis during their term in office. It would be quite the coup if they could as no one so far has been able to provide a lasting solution to the volatile problems that effect the area (and the entire world by extension).  This April things could change  as there have been a number of reports in the last few days that indicate that the Trump team of Kushner and Greenblatt have come up with a plan that all parties can agree to. According to information leaked ahead of the actual roll out date of mid-April following Israeli elections the carrot that brings the Palestinians to the table is the promise of a Palestinian State with a divided Jerusalem as the capital. If this is true, the consequences of such an action would have serious and lasting consequences.

As you can see from the verse in Joel that God gives stern warning regarding the division of his land . Who knows if the moral and political division we are experiencing is not a direct result of the time and effort put in to advancing such a diabolical plan. If so, I can only imagine the result its actual implementation might bring.  A great earthquake? The eruption of Yellowstone, the super volcano or perhaps the New Madrid fault?

The physical dividing of our country in response to the physical dividing of His.

I don’t know but I think we would be remiss to think it could not happen. Interesting in 2024 there will be another eclipse that will cut across the American continent from the other direction creating a virtual x where the two courses cross. As it so happens, the X falls quite precisely in line with the New Madrid fault. I don’t think it could be any plainer.

A Message on the Beach

“For the preaching of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” 1 Corinthians 1:18

The Cross

On Saturday February 2 a gigantic wooden cross washed a shore on a Ft. Lauderdale beach just outside a resort hotel. At 20 feet in size (and covered with barnacles) it made quite an impression on those who found it. It was not immediately known where it came from leading many to guess at it origins. Some thought it may have come up from South America where it had been washed in to the sea by a mighty storm while others thought perhaps it was the last vestiges of a ship somewhere that had previously met its doom. But all guessing aside, the mystery was soon solved when a woman by the name of Robin Stowe stepped forward to identify it.

According to Stowe the cross is most likely one erected in memory of her late brother Captain Richard Baran who disappeared on a solo hunting trip in the Hatteras Inlet off the North Carolina coast in 2016.  Constructed by a man named, Aaron Aaron – (and yes, his first name is the same as his last) the cross was placed by friends at the site of his last known camp in honor of his memory. Mr. Aaron was able to identify the cross in Florida as the one he had constructed for Mr. Baran by a series of distinctive marks made in the course of its construction. Stowe also thinks that the cross was most likely set adrift from the place it had been set when Hurricane Nate hit the North Carolina coast in October 2017  ….. finally coming to a rest 16 months later on a Florida beach where it was found.

It’s interesting the stir this cross created. Not only did crowds gather to see it but multiple news agencies carried the story across the nation and around the world. Some saw the cross as a divine sign of sorts; something spiritual for sure. Others saw it as a simple oddity of the kind that washes up on beaches across the world on any given day and nothing more. Others just gazed at in wonder not sure what to think.

I confess, I myself found the photos to be riveting; compelling.  This immense cross rolling up like some kind of lost treasure in the pounding surf. There was just something about it. And because I don’t believe in coincidence when it comes to the things of God I began to look at the story for clues that this might be a divine appointment of some kind and I have to tell you, I was not disappointed.

A Message in Names and Numbers

Sometimes there is something to be learned by looking at the finer details of an event and I have to tell you this one was replete with interesting details. So much so that in my humble opinion there was a definite reason for this particular cross to wash up on shore on this particular date. Let me go over some of the details.

1- The cross came to rest on a Florida beach 11 days after New York celebrated the right to kill babies up until the moment of birth by lighting the spire on top of the World Trade Center Tower pink. The number 11 in the Bible is significant as it is representative of the irresponsibility of law breaking, (God’s law)  disorder and judgment.

2- The search for Captain Richard Baran covered 33 miles over a period of 8 hours. Both numbers Biblically significant.

3- The name Baran according to Wikipedia means “Ram“. The name Richard means “ruler, King, powerful, strong”.

4- The cross was apparently dislodged from its place by Hurricane Nate. Nate is a derivative of the name Nathan which brings to mind the Prophet Nathan. It was Nathan in the book of 2 Samuel who reprimanded King David for his adultery with Bathsheba and the death of her husband Uriah.

5- Also of interest, the Cape off the East Coast of North Carolina (Hatteras) has long been known as the graveyard of the Atlantic for its danger to shipping.

6- The cross was afloat from October 2017 to February 2019 – a period of 16 months.

7- And last but not least, the name of the man who constructed the cross Mr. Aaron Aaron. Very interesting because it is a double name of the same …. and anything repeated is done for emphasis.  Aaron in the Bible was the older brother of Moses and the first high priest whose name means “lofty, exalted, high mountain”.

So what does this all mean? If anything? I can’t say exactly but I think the word associations are indicative that there is more to the story than just a barnacle encrusted cross washing up on a shore to the amusement and curiosity of local beachgoers.

So, perhaps it could be said like this.

Our nation which was once considered to be a Christian nation has lost sight of the cross. (Symbolized by the cross set adrift from where it once stood firm).

We are (for a number of reasons) due for judgment and headed for the graveyard as far as nations are concerned.

Hurricane Nate (Nathan) reprimands us for our adulterous ways as the cross is temporarily removed from the sight of a nation gone blind. A nation who ….

…. prefers the sacrifice of ones own children to the sacrifice of God (his own son) as symbolized by the sacrificial animal, the ram.

The cross constructed by Aaron Aaron (as in high priest) returns to shore after a period of approximately 16 months. (Sixteen is known as the number of love biblically speaking primarily so for the 16 characteristics of love listed in the great love chapter of the Bible 1 Corinthians 13:4-8). The cross of Jesus, our high Priest returning to the shores of our beloved country after 16 months for one reason and one reason only ….. love.

Providing this message to us …. a message on the beach …

In spite of our sin, in spite of our rejection, in spite of our rebellion. The cross of Jesus continues to reach out to us in love.

Which does not mean that we are not still headed for judgment. But rather that the cross of Christ is still available for those who would repent of their sin and come to faith in Christ. There is still time. But, not much.

And perhaps that is the real story of the cross that washed up on a beach that lazy afternoon of February 2.  Not a message in a bottle but rather a message from the Master himself. I don’t know about you but I’d kind of like to think so.

Fearful Events and Signs

imagesN0L7STTH

“There will be great earthquakes, famines and pestilences in various places, and fearful events and great signs from heaven.” Luke 21:11

I read with interest this morning a post by Michael Snyder on his blog End of the American Dream titled “Apocalyptic Sounds in the Sky…“.  Apparently there have been a number of mystery booms and flashes of light occurring across the country with out any obvious explanation. And while I have not experienced this phenomenon myself I suspect that we have entered a time period when just about all of us would do well to expect the unexpected.

The Bible is quite clear that in the last days “there will be fearful events and great signs from heaven”. Is this what people are hearing? A precursor to these things? I really don’t know. But what we do know is that we have entered a period of time unlike any other in history; one that will culminate with the return of Jesus Christ. I pray that if you do not know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior that you will make that decision today. The world is unstable in more ways than one and knowing Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior is the only way to be ready.

Written In Blood

untitled

On Thursday June 14, 2012 President Obama penned these words on the face of a steel beam that would support the One World Trade Center as it rose from the ashes of what had once been the World Trade Center with its famous twin towers.  Defiantly written in red it was a bold statement that would be integrated in to the tower itself. An echo of the words spoken by Senator Tom Daschle from the Senate floor on September 12, 2001 as he quoted Isaiah 9:10 from the Bible.

The bricks are fallen down, but we will rebuild with hewn stones: The sycamores are cut down but we will change them into cedars”.

Written extensively about by Rabbi Jonathan Cahn in The Harbinger the words that Senator Daschle meant for comfort for the nation were actually words of arrogance and defiance by the leaders of Israel in response to the judgment of God. Words that would bring additional judgment for a nation unrepentant of its sins. In this same way an increasingly defiant America has set herself up for a deeper and perhaps more permanent judgment for sins she has not in any way repented of … particularly the sin of abortion which is rapidly morphing in to infanticide.

Fast forward to January 22, 2019 when the spire from the World Trade Center was lit up in pink to celebrate the legalization of abortion up until birth. Ironically, it was at this very site that 11 unborn children were killed in the terror attack on September 11, 2001. And where people continue to come today to mourn for those very children.

In a post from my friend at Running From Babylon she explores the prophetic words by David Wilkerson some years back regarding the judgment coming to America for the sin of abortion. In a post titledO New York, New York! What Have You Done?” she looks at recent events in light of Wilkerson’s visions and ponders how close we might be to the fulfillment of those words. If you are interested you may read it here.

Its been a number of years since President Obama penned those bold words in red. Words that on January 22, 2019 bled out into the night like some kind of bloodied syringe as the spire of  the One World Trade Center was lit up in pink for all to see. And while New York is not the only state that allows for abortion up through the 9th month it is the public declaration and celebration of (from a spot that should have led to personal and national repentance following 911) that will bring the greatest judgment of all.  For 911, if anything was a warning … a warning that has largely gone unheeded. May God have mercy on us all!

Weep For the Children

imagesXXB5Q7X8

“They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.”  Psalm 106:38

I can’t remember another week quite like this one.  Not in my lifetime anyway. I’ve seen pictures from the holocaust before that I have had to turn away from ….. skeletal images of people with hollowed out eyes peering out at me from the vestiges of time as if I could have done something. But I tell them “I can’t help you, I wasn’t there”.  And I feel momentarily vindicated. But it is too late – I have seen their eyes and I remain guilty as accused.

This week we have been witness to something that will remain with us for a very long time and we will rue the day the City of New York was lit up pink in celebration of “Women’s Reproductive Rights” as it so euphemistically has been called. The cheering and clapping that accompanied the passage of a law that would allow for abortion up until the moment of birth will be turned to one of horror and mourning. God is not mocked. What a man sows that will he reap. For what we celebrate God deplores and this land once so abundantly blessed will be blessed no more. In fact, it most likely will not survive. At little more than 200 years old, our country (by world standards) is newly born. The infanticide we wish on children will likely come back on our own heads.

We cannot undo 53 million abortions. But what we can do is beg God for forgiveness, plead for his mercy and boldly stand up to those who are in opposition to life. No more sitting silently by. For the blood of the innocent calls out to God every day to be avenged and in doing so we will all be called to account. When that day comes (and it will) what will you (and I) have to say?

“I couldn’t help; I was busy; there was nothing that I could do“…  it was their choice not mine”.

There are many ways to be involved in standing for and protecting life. I don’t know what God would have you to do …. but do something! If nothing else, the collective voice of those who claim to be Christian and those who are prolife could make an enormous difference. So speak now. Speak for the children. For if we don’t speak for our children, we most certainly will weep for our children.
